It's the 12th Anniversary of Purple Onion Designs and we are celebrating with a sale and lots of fun new projects. The discounted prices will appear in your cart.
I have a set of four tags each featuring an image from the new Stacey Yacula Sweet Occasions collection. Michele showed these on the Purple Onion Designs blog this weekend so I wanted to feature them here as well. I started out by cutting all the image tags from Neenah Brilliant White cardstock using the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #3 die and then another set from Soft Stone, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse and Orange Zest striped patterned paper. The tag toppers were cut from matching cardstock. The season name from the Seasons sentiment set was stamped onto each tag.
For the Winter tag, I partially stamped Jolly directly onto the tag and colored with Copic markers. I added a snowflake cut from Wild Wisteria cardstock using a die from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes set. For the Spring tag, I stamped a portion of the Pond image and the Clouds directly onto the tag shape. I then stamped True & Blue onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copics and fussy cut out, eliminating the legs. I placed them in the pond, attaching with foam tape.
I stamped Bubbly directly onto the Summer tag wiping away the sparkler part of the image. After coloring the image with Copic Markers, I added a pinwheel cut with The Cat's Pajamas Pinwheels CutUps, replacing the sparkler. For the Fall tag, I stamped a portion of Perch and then colored with Copics. I also stamped Cinnamon onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copics and fussy cut out, attaching to the tag with foam tape. I am entering the summer one in the current Tag You're It (#28) challenge as I was inspired by the animal on the tag inspiration piece.
After adding a couple of enamel dots to each tag, I strung the matching tags together with twine. Here are the individual photos.
